How One May See Ghosts. i
In my youth I saw a pantomime, in
which were exhibited Black and tight rope
dancirg, tumbling, balancing and various
other feats of skill. Among these the
perfor mance of the clown was conspicn
ous. Holding the right foot In the left
hand 1 e used the loop thus formed as a
skippi tg rope, through which he leaped
backward and forward very rapidly. The
next morning, just before waking, I bad a
confused dream of this scene, in which the
skipping clown was again prominent.
The whole picture faded gradually as I
became more and more conscious of my
actual surroundings; but I found that on
closing my eyes it was faintly reproduced,
and that on reopening them the place oc
cupied by the clown, whitish on a dark
ground when the eyes were closed, ap
peared against a white bed curtain as a pale
purple spot, indistinct, but evidently in
motior, like a pulsating heart. In this
case lively impressions upon the mind and
eye, after remaining dormant for many
hours, assumed during a dream the ap
pearanse of reality, though the nerves of
the eye were so feebly excited that a pale
colored spot only could endure the test of
faint d iy light.
Had the room been darker, though not
in tota. darkness, the moving figure would
have bi-en nearly as distinct when the eyes
were ojen as when they were closed. Thus
it is easy to see that one person dreaming
of another, nud gradually waking in par
tial darkness, on seeing the other's image
still beforehis eyes, might not unnaturally
suppose that his "ghost" had appeared
"a visitant f ram another world" probably
to ancoance his reeent decease! Black
The Increase of Crime In Massachusetts.
From the report of the attorney general
for the year 1S39 it appears that in the
dark a;es or 1S36-8, when the punitive
idea wss still esteemed as valuable and in
accordance with immutable law, England
and Wales, with a population of 14,000,000,
had bur, 14,771 prisoners, or one to every
94S inhabitants; Xew York, with a popula
tion of i,300,0i)0, had 1.0S6 prisoners, or one
to every 2.02o; Massachusetts, with a pop
ulation of 700,000, had 853 prisoners, or one
to every 822 inhabitants. The report of the
commissioners of prisons for 1S90 shows
that th.s proportion of prisoners to popula
tion has vastly changed. The population
has only trebled, but the number of pris
oners b is increased fifty fold.
In tha county prisons alone, excluding
the stale prison and reformatories, this
proportion has increased to one prisoner to
every 4M inhabitants. The criminal cases
in the lower courts during the year ending
Sept. 30, 18a0, were in the aggregate fil.255,
and in the superior court 2,158 more in
all, 83,4:3; and of this number 33,290 were
committed to the county prisons. Wil

An Indian Verdict.
In a cise in one of our Indian courts a
jury ha 1 before them evidence that could
not be i a any way shaken. When the con
cluding stage had been reached, the follow
ing interchange of conversation took place
between the judge and his colleagues in
the ad a inUtration of justice, "Gentlemen,
are you ready to give your verdict?"
"Yes." "What is your verdict?" "Our
answer is, sir, that you can do as you like
with tht! men that have confessed, but we
acquit .ill the rest." "But is it possible
that yoa have weighed the evidence?"
"Evidet ce like this can always be fabri
cated." "Do you find that as regards
these p-isoners it has been fabricated?"
"Evidetce can be fabricated." "So the
evidencn is untrustworthy?" "Unless a
man coi if esses who can tell if he is guilty?"
Kangaroos are usually found in the open
or amid straggling bush, where it is very
difficult to get at them and where the
hunter may think himself lucky if he gets
more tl an one in a day. One of the best
forms of sport in Australia is found in
shooting bush wallabies or paddymelons,
which singular names are of native or
igin. Paddymelons are a small kangaroo,
standing about three feet in height, and
furnish the sportsman an opportunity to
display all his skill in shooting by the
quickness of their movements and tbe
difficult nature of the country in which
they are found. Boston Journal.
A Pound of Swallows.
How tiany live swallows go to a pound?
This question lately formed the subject of
a bet in the little town of X , in Baden.
A swallow was caught, and its legs and
wings ti 3d up with a piece of silk thread,
and placed on the scales. To everybody's
surprise, it was found to weigh only ten
gramme, so that it takes fifty of them to
make uj' a pound. Karlsruher Nachrich

from dinner, while still warm, and cut
them in thin slices. Let the slices fall on
